was not enough on the revenue side. you hear, you know, many politicians chiming in. howard dean, for example, saying in december that the truth is everybody needs to pay more taxes. we're not going to get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board. the rich can't solve the problem. i guess that is where i'm going with this is, it seems like, especially from what you're saying susan, everyone will have to pay more taxes to get out of this. >> i actually don't agree with that point. i don't agree with howard dean either. we're not looking more middle class tax increases. the president has been pretty firm on that. we're looking closing coorate loopholes. some people are starting to talk about high frequent financial transaction tax for people that are trading for less than a minute in a position. melissa: none of that will get us there. >> that could raise $350 billion, if you add that with tax cuts could get 1.2 the president is talking about. there are some measures to get up close. melissa: we're adding trillions every year to our deficit. what do you think, stephen,
. yesterday i said all the governs ought to take the place of the senator sometimes. >> they had howard dean on today, too. >> howard dean. so is government hard? here we have one vote per individual. we're lucky we can get -- that's the way we do it. you have 50/50, off split. >> but we're a representative democracy. >> but how do you -- if you have diametrically opposed opinions on the way the country should go forward, when we see rise above, does that mean president obama gets to do whatever he wants? does that mean only the conservative republicans in deficit talks, they have to get their way? it's just weird. >> it's complicated. >> but when it's all said and done, didn't we get something done? >> we did, but moody's looks at it and says, this is not nearly enough. >> it's a slow process that we'll be involved with any further. >> are you positive on -- >> no, i want to add judd gregg, has it actually formed -- because he willingly went into the senate knowing how difficult it would be to do these things. >> and it was a "60 minutes" piece. a month or two ago, looked at sort of congres
control. perhaps the only democrat telling the truth about this is our old pal, howard dean, the uber liberal former governor of vermont. >> the truth is everybody needs to pay more taxes, not just the rich. that's a good start, but we're not going to get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board. >> bill: now, governor dean sympathizes with the socialist philosophy and that's where the country is heading. taking from those who are productive and giving to those who are struggling. or who are working for the massive government apparatus. during this christmas season, i think we all should emulate officer deprimo, we should try to help those in need, but that help may be futile, if the government doesn't wise up and stop the incredible entitlement spending, america's economy will eventually collapse. president obama needs to invite jeffrey hillman to the white house. he needs to talk the man with no shoes. he needs to see what is actually happening in this country. got to get real about government spending. now, the top story tonight, this is incredible, the pe

of the howard dean. so i think what we had was really smart technology and data meshed with the relationships and the notion that grassroots and organizing and ordinary people and their efforts can and should be at the center of the campaign. >> all right. how does this get used going forward? i think that was always the question in '08. and it didn't, i know there was attempts to be made, but you could argue, considering the political problems the president ran into on health care and other things, 2010 didn't so well for the president's party, is this unique -- how do you make the case that this isn't unique to obama? that somehow what you've done can be transferred and done for other candidates, other political parties, other entities, other policy fights, et cetera. >> i don't think it can be necessarily transferred and say, let's check the box and move on. i think the effort can be replicated. so what it boils down to is the head of the organization, whether there's a candidate, an executive director of a nonprofit, or a ceo, needs to decide that they're going to have a meaningful relati
at the dnc and something chairman howard dean used to talk about. part of the problem is democrats after, you know, there was the civil rights movement, democrats basically gave up on the south, and we resorted to an 18-state strategy in our presidential elections and we don't make our case in the south. so what people in a lot of these southern, and particularly in red states, end up hearing is the only the one side bashing democrats. we don't stand up and make our case. i will tell you in my own family i have nra members who are hunters, and they own guns, and they have children. they don't want armed guards in their children's schools and they certainly are fine with the idea of background checks, but i think this also goes to the nra has largely had the playing field to themselves because they've spent millions and millions of dollars over the last several years and this is part of why this effort now, and i think in the south i hope that the president makes a very strong effort in the south. i think he could have flipped georgia if he had more financial resources. if you take a look at s
over the cliff. howard dean has said this as well because the resulting recession that might happen is worth a couple of quarters. alan greenspan said the same thing, a worth of couple of quarters of recession to get our house in fiscal order again. do you agree? >> look. i never believe that across-the-board cuts are a smart way to bring a budget down. you want to go and cut those things that really need to be cut. if you look at the sequester, the things being cut is the discretionary spending. what we really need to focus on are the entitlements because that's where we have growth far beyond the growth of gdp so i'd much rather see us focus on the entitlements, bring down the cost of health care and make social security sustainably solvent and do something about the discretionary spending. >> can you explain something to me that i don't understand, that we have democrats on repeatedly and i say to them, you know, entitlement spending, i think everybody agrees is the problem. would you means test social security? would you means test medicare? we have billionaires on who get a soc

, the death nail for republicans is the tone of this. we had evangelical latinos wanting to meet with howard dean at the dnc. i'm just saying, that's a shift, right? >> it's the beginning of a bad joke. >> we saw in droves, you know, the latino community moving over to the democratic party largely because of the tone. you have even republicans in the republican party who are latino just disgusted with the tone. these guys have to be very, very careful. the other thing that these guys know is that those, you know, crazy crackers on the right, like if they start with their very hateful language, that is going to kill them in the same way that they learned at their little retreat that let's not talk about rape. >> or they learned in 2012 that self-deportation and alligator filled moats, keep in mind that herman cain was running for president when he said that. it's at least in the memo. >> look at the originality of this. if you look at some of the voices on the republican side who are for immigration reform, you have jeff flank, marco rubio. people who are conservatives, but in border areas or

independents. it is very, very interesting what is happening. it is a lack of a farm team. in 2004 howard dean had the 50-state strategy and build up the party, and what happened to th that? where has it been? there is another interesting thing about christie and i think about this a lot, would americans be willing to elect a fat president, just to be frank? and this is what we know. five technically obese presidents in history, and the last one was taft in -- e he left office in 1913. and would americans actually vote for christie? in some ways i think that probably when you consider that 63% of adult americans are obese under our how we measure, that and on the other hand, i'm not sure that, you know, if there was a woman and we were having this conversation that it would be a whole different story, but it is interesting and he presents a very interesting persona and in terms of the physical embodiment, a challenge to contemporary american politic, and that is interesting. >> you will get into trouble about that comment, but it is not completely irrelevant if you are talking about the theate
